In a couple more months we shall be tortured again with the same right-wing scam, lies, deceptions, greed, distortions, hostage-taking, selfishness, and repeated hurt to the American economy and future. All that so that the likes of the Koch Brothers, Senator Cruz, the tea party, and the military-industrial complex can have their own way. We have always had some right-wing extremes in the United States, but the current group has access to more media and more penetration into the minds of Americans. They are not only dangerous, they are wrong. These greed-merchants do not take any prisoners.
Wisconsin, once the bastion of clean government, is now represented by the likes of U.S. Senator Ron Johnson and Congressman James Sensenbrenner. Senator Johnson loves to tell people that the U.S. government is spending too much money. Yet Senator Johnson himself, when a businessman, loved to accept U.S. government help in building his profits. Yes, he took government largesse. Congressman Sensenbrenner, though in the House for many years, has yet to be a force for good, a force for compromise, a force for advancing the lives of ordinary Americans. Sensenbrenner was born with a silver spoon in his mouth. That was not enough for him, he had to have more and he used his office to make profits for himself voting favorably for stocks and ownership windfalls. He likes to tell us his investments are in a blind trust, yet I know where his investmaents are and you can easily find that out also. Imagine, Sensenbrenner even had money invested in Halliburton!
This latest sequestration and threat of a shutdown has cost the federal government hurdreds of billions of dollars and thousands of jobs. With the threat of a government shutdown and its accompanying economic disaster, companies stopped expanding business and hiring people. Uncertainty has been a disaster for the U.S. economy. With another confrontation in Congress on the horizon for January and February, the very important holiday season of spending looks bleak. That will be a negative bombshell for the future of the U.S. Do you think this concerns the Koch Brothers? It sure concerns the average American.
What can be done? As long as these right-wingers listen to the marching orders of the people who buy their offices, things look dark. We have to vote these tea party nuts out of office. We need to vote these goose-stepping, greedy conservatives out of office. What more evidence do you have to have?
